Richard Beddingfield

I am an NC State postdoc focusing on power electronics and high power, medium frequency magnetics. I am also a co-founder of the Advanced Magnetics for Power and Energy Development (AMPED) Consortium. I worked with the FREEDM Center during my undergraduate and graduate studies (2011 – 2018) as an undergraduate research scholar, Electric Power Systems Engineering Masters, and PhD. During that time, I built my passion for education and outreach through my involvement with the Student Leadership Council as well as various teaching opportunities through the University. I joined the National Energy Technology Lab as an ORISE Postdoctoral Research Fellow (2018-2020) where I focused on new magnetic material development and characterization. I returned to NC State to continue postdoctoral studies in medium voltage converters for electrification and grid applications.
